Soup Kitchen Volunteering
As a part of the Service as Action activity we organised the volunteering program in the Soup Kitchen of the "Missionaries of Charity - Sisters of Mother Teresa”. The turnout has been great – many students signed up to volunteer in the soup kitchen on Tuesdays during the months of March and April. On March 12th our first group of students – Clemente, Gauhar, Karlo, Marton and Vesa accompanied by the Religion teacher Tatjana started volunteering. The second group of students - Arlind, Evan, Laura, Maciej and Mia Z. volunteered on March 19th. The third group of students – Andrija, Arho, Katja, Luka S. and Marko volunteered on April 9th. We peeled potatoes, chopped vegetables, and served meals. In the end we washed the dishes and tidied up the kitchen. It was a pleasant and useful experience for all of us.
We would like to thank the Missionaries of Charity for opening their door and their hearts to us, and allowing us to help those most in need. We headed home with our hearts full, wishing to return some other time to help those living at the edge of existence, and also help the Sisters who radiate an incredible joy of life and love. We would like to thank all the students and their parents for supporting these service activity and to all the students-volunteers.
